Operation Baking Gals: Round Five
FINALLY!!! I get to be a OBG hostess. I am so excited!
As you may have read here before I have been a baker for rounds 1 - 4 because the military folks I know are all safely back in the good old U.S. of A.
However, I got to talking to Lisa, one of the officers who comes in to our office occasionally for business. Truth be told I met her mostly because I was making her nuts (for various reasons outside my control, I swear!) and she came in to straighten things out.
We go to talking and I found out that she'd done a two year tour in Iraq and that her husband had been shipped over and that he'd be coming back for like a minute, before turning around and heading back out for Afghanistan. Phew!
So anyway, turns out that Lisa is a really nice person and now I have a big soft spot for her because that's a big sacrifice and this is a teeny weeny way to acknowledge that.
Without further ado, let me introduce Kevin! (At least I hope that's Kevin! Lisa sent me the pic and said "He's the one kneeling on the left". Everyone who knows me, knows that left and right are sort of abstract concepts for me.)
This is the group photo. If I was able, I would send them all cookies.
If you are interested in joining my team, please email me and I will send you the details. The ship out dates for this round are December 5th through 18th.
You'll be glad you did, I promise you.
